Mutated Microsoft mouse spotted in the wild

A mutated Microsoft mouse – which bears a distinct resemblance to Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame – has been spotted scampering around a German online store.

According to Notebooksbilliger and Engadget, the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse arches its rather formidable hump for “comfortable” use, while packing flat for convenient transport.

The Quasimodo mouse also features touch-scrolling, a battery indicator, a 2.4GHz (USB) nano transceiver and the ability to track on most surfaces.

The mutated device, which was likely designed by inebriated Russian scientists suffering from a post-traumatic meltdown of Chernobyl-like proportions, is expected to retail at a cool $70.

I don’t know about you, but even Apple’s “magical” rodent is looking good in comparison.

So yeah, if I was to shell out $70, I think it would be for the Magic Mouse. 

Hell, it may still be a shiny and snobby Apple product, but at least the Steve Jobs mouse doesn’t look like it is suffering from a severe calcium deficiency.
